Seafarers are individuals who work on ships, vessels, or other watercraft that travel on the oceans, seas, or other bodies of water. They perform a variety of roles such as operating and navigating the ship, maintaining and repairing its machinery, managing cargo, and ensuring the safety of the vessel and its passengers.
Seafarers may work on commercial ships transporting cargo or passengers, research vessels, military ships, or other specialized vessels such as offshore drilling rigs or cruise ships. Seafaring can be a challenging and rewarding career, but it also requires a high level of skill, knowledge, and dedication to safety.
